Post an Announcement

Post an Announcement

From time to time, you may wish to post announcements to students, such as reminders of exams or information about changes to your office hours. Announcements are created from the Announcements page. When you create an announcement, it is sent to all students in the course and displays in their announcements window on their BrainHoney Home Page.

You can set different expiration options, depending upon the type of announcement. You may want to post your office hours in an announcement that never expires, or remind students of an exam in an announcement that expires on the date of the exam.

From the Communicate menu, click Announcements.
